If you’re always in the mood for a funny comedy series that follows the lives of rich and famous, how about sitcoms about stars whose fame has faded away? They were all the rage in Hollywood this spring, and here are three shows about washed-up stars that everyone was raving about.

Jean Smart’s career experienced a true resurgence in the last few years, and this comedy series gives her a chance to shine in the spotlight. She plays a Las Vegas comedy diva who’s struggling to attract a younger audience and teams up with a millennial writer in an attempt to come up with fresh, new material.
